Employee satisfaction survey questions & templates
The ultimate goal of any business is to grow over the years and take their organisation from good to great. You can have as many meticulously-planned strategies as you like, but the one core element that will unlock the potential of your business is the people that work for you. A positive work environment however is not just a matter of keeping your staff feeling happy and satisfied but to make them feel valued and engaged.
Satisfaction & Happiness vs Engagement
Satisfied employees will show up every day at 9am and clock out again at 5pm, they have no desire or motivation to go beyond the minimum effort. At the end of the day that is all they are, merely satisfied.
Happy employees in the workplace doesn't directly correlate with employees working hard and productively. Company nights out, games rooms and free lunches are fun, but are only a tiny part of that push to making them feel valued and engaged.
Engaged employees believe they can and are making a difference in the organisation. Unlike those who are merely satisfied in their jobs, they will use discretionary effort to go above and beyond to achieve their own goals and the goals of the organisation.
